Lost in Iran with Two Fujis | James Conley

Iran. Although home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, (dating back more than 5,000 years), since 1979 Iran is most commonly known for the Islamic Revolution that toppled Mohammad Reza Pahlavi and took 66 Americans hostage, holding them for 444 days. Iran is daily in the news, with its military activities in Syria and Yemen, its support of Hezbollah, endless negotiations over its nuclear program, and its detention of reporters like the Washington Post’s Jason Rezaian. „Death to America“ is a chant heard in televised demonstrations in Tehran, setting the outside view of Iran as a hostile one to the West. In contrast to this public view, I’ve been fortunate to know many Iranians who live in the United States, as well as abroad. Without exception, they love the United States and the common theme among them is a love of life and all it has to offer. With these contrasting experiences in mind, I determined to make a trip to Iran……

Cuba No Colour – With The Leica Monochrom | Nick Devlin

Havana is a city of legend and ruin, richness and privation. It is also, indisputably, a city of colour in the popular mind.  So travelling there with nothing but a Leica Monochrom was surely madness.  Truth be told, this is partly what attracted me to this hare-brained scheme.  Cuba has been photographed as well and as much as any place on earth –  seen and shown by many of the great eyes of our time.  But always in colour. So when Michael and I departed for a four-day foray into Havana this past March, I took only the Monochrom, leaving my colour cameras behind. I had been told: “Cubans are ridiculously friendly”.   It’s true.  I have never travelled to any place where wealthy, voyeuristic tourists are met with such openness of spirit and friendliness.  For a country that has suffered generations of exploitation, and recently decades of intense economic privation, the general kindness and peaceability of the ordinary people is exceptional…….

Riding Through Australian Countryside with the Fuji XT-1 |
Caveira Photography

Recently I was very lucky to spend 5 days cruising through the countryside of Victoria, Australia, soaking up amazing scenery that is unique to this part of the world, and experiencing some of the best light I’ve ever seen. There were many euphoric moments of awe and appreciation for my home country’s beauty, beauty that I had never seen or made a strong enough effort to experience and appreciate properly beforehand. Knowing full well that I had many kilometers of riding on rough tracks ahead of me, I packed a light day kit, which of course featured my FujiFilm XT-1, XF56, XF18, and the underrated XC50-230. With just about every focal length covered, plus a few spare batteries, I was ready to capture just about anything that caught my eye, which there was of course and abundance of………

Zion – Landscape Photography | Mac Sokulski

This little day trip, happened over a year ago, and the photos where sitting on my hard drive collecting digital dust.  There are many others, that might see the light of day, or may not.  Procrastination and the fact that I wasn’t overly happy with the images played into the fact why I waited so long.  Personally I do not like changing my landscape photos, apart from small details and colors.  I never been a fan of replacing skies either.  First I find the task daunting, and second I like to leave some semblance of realism in my images.  If there are no clouds, then there are no clouds.  I have nothing against people who do that, nothing at all… I’m just lazy and frankly couldn’t be bothered. Being an opportunistic photographer, I don’t have the luxury of time, and spending a few days at a location, waiting for mother nature to smile.  I take what I’m given :)  Some say, that I’m wasting my time and pixels, but I disagree……..

Istanbul on Exposure | Jim Tardio

We spent an all too short three days in the bustling city of Istanbul, Turkey. The people were engaging and the atmosphere was intoxicating. Istanbul is truly a crossroads for all cultures and beliefs. With a sweep of your eyes you can see a mix of Americans wearing shorts to Muslim women in Burkas, and everything in between…all in perfect harmony. It’s a city meant for walking. Stroll the Spice Bazaar and Grand Bazaar, mingle with the merchants on the banks of the Bosphorus, sample the food and drink the tea. It’s all good…….

Aussie Alpine Drive – An Australian Roadtrip To Californian Forest | Noah Stammbach

We met on a special cliff near Bondi Beach. The vague destination of our spontaneous road trip – Laurel Hill, somewhere south west of Sydney. There are four of us, 18 to 28, and our journey is one where all the elements of adventure would be found along the way, and come together to form the best first road trip ever….

8 Days in Hawaii | Ian MacDonald

We recently returned from a family vacation to Hawaii, specifically to the island of Oahu.  It was an amazing week (plus a day) of sun, shared experiences with the family and of course, photography. Like many other photographers, family vacations for me have always been a struggle between sharing the trip with my family, but also wanting to be in the right place, at the right time, with the right gear, to capture a great image.   Planning for this trip was helped greatly by a series David Hobby and Andrew Tomasino have on Lynda.com called The Traveling Photographer. In that series, David talks about striking the right balance between being a photographer and  being a husband and father. I’ll tell you right now this is not always the easiest thing to do. Creative people have a desire to…. well…. create.  The true definition of photography is to write with light, and the best light often comes right when it would make sense to schedule and plan a family activity…..

Chefchaouen – The Blue Pearl | V. Opoku

Somethings are forever, they stay with us. The few days I spent in Chefchaouen (pronounced Shafshawan) during the summer of 2014 is one of those. Located in Northwest Morocco. This beautiful town sits beneath the raw peaks of the Rif mountains and has an absolutely stunning Medina where almost everything in the is painted in various shades of blue, from the walls, to doors & floors. The likes of Marrakesh and Fez seems to get the nod ahead of other smaller towns by people visiting Morocco. However I am more of a traveller than a tourist and that means I often venture along the path less travelled or do activities that most people don’t do. I travel to explore and experience different cultures. After spending 5 days in Southern Spain (Seville and Sanlucar de Barrameda) visiting a good friend of mine Fran, I realised how close I was to Morocco so I thought why not? „I am going to Morocco tomorrow“ I informed him. Armed with just a few Spanish phrases, I set off around 7 am on a bus from Sanlucar de Berrameda to Jerez. From Jerez, it was a train ride to San Fernando then a short taxi ride to the bus stop where I then caught another bus all the way down to Tarifa. Hours passed and I had finally completed the first leg of the trip; with just „Que autobus de Tarifa“ and a  few nods, I had managed to make it to where I needed be…..

Trip to Rome | Luke Walker

It’s been almost a year since I’ve had the opportunity to get out and about with my X100s. I’ve shot a handful of photos and I took some when over the Christmas break when I was abroad but not enough. Not enough to feel 100% comfortable using it again. Last week I spent several days in Rome and really wanted to get some decent photos. Although I took a few I’m happy with, I feel most are too cliché and I missed some killer street shots. If you want to get the most out of the camera then you need to use it on a regular basis, otherwise the little git will play hard to get: the menu isn’t overly easy to navigate but more importantly getting the focussing to work in a way that suits your style takes some getting used to. Maybe it’s just me, but either way, I need to keep using it more so that when I do get to use it for extended periods it feels natural. I’m no expert but you can’t expect to bag those unique moments if you’re faffing around with the camera settings 90% of the time…..

Q+A: Fuji X on Assignment | David duChemin

You’d be amazed how many emails and comments I get that begin with the words, “I know you don’t like gear questions, but…” So to be clear, I don’t mind gear questions at all. I just don’t know why people think I’m the best person to answer them. I like gear. Hell, I LOVE some of my gear. But I ask of it some very specific, and limited things, and some of the people asking some of the questions are looking for a tool that can do the things that they themselves should be doing. Or maybe they’re looking for a justification to buy a new toy that maybe, just maybe, has the Un-Suck Filter. They don’t. My Fujis don’t, and neither do my Leicas or Nikons.  What I want my cameras to do is get out of the way as quickly as possible and let me do my job. So with that in mind, a few responses to some very sensible questions (I’ll spare you the non-sensical questions like: Should I get a Fuji? No one can answer that for you. Fuji. Leica. Nikon. Canon. All of them will make incredible photographs as easily as truly bad ones.)……
